Clogged Drains

Clogged Drains Minneapolis, MNDrainage systems are very complex installations and it’s important that they be maintained well. However, very few people actually worry about the maintenance of these systems. The only time they actually think of these systems is when they stop working or start acting up. And when that happens, they run around looking for a skilled plumber to handle the job for them.

Right Mark is a reputed company that has been providing excellent services to customers across Minneapolis, Edina, Eden Prairie, Buffalo, Maple Grove, and Minnetonka, as well as in Rockford, Medina, Montrose, and Monticello. Clogged drains are a very common issue that may be caused by different things. Oil, dirt, debris, grease, hair, soap etc get washed into the drain and over time, these things build up in the drains and turn into a clog.

If there is an in-growth of roots in the drain pipes, this aggravates the issue and you will have to deal with a backup of water in the sink and shower areas. In most cases, just a DIY effort like using a plunger or a snake drain doesn’t do the trick and it becomes necessary to hire the services of a professional plumber to deal with the clogged drain issue.

Drain Cleaning Process

The different types of services they offer to tackle this problem are:

  • Inspection - This is the very first step of the clogged drain repair process. The plumber will ascertain what is causing the clog and then thoroughly inspect the plumbing systems. They will check all the related systems; this will help them identify whether the problem lies with the drain or any other component.

  • Cleaning the clog - Once the plumbers are certain that the issue is in the drain, they will use a specialized drain snake to clear the block. In most instances this solves the problem.

  • Camera inspection - In case the clog is very stubborn and it doesn’t get cleared with the drain snake, the plumber will then use a CCTV drain camera to check what is causing the clog. Drains don’t get blocked so easily as they have quite a wide diameter. However, there are times when tree roots infiltrate the drain pipe and start growing inside the pipeline. Before long they form a mesh of sorts and the debris and dirt gets caught in the roots and forms a stubborn clog.

  • Hydrojet - Once they have identified the location of the clog, a hydro-jet will be used to clear the clog. The high water pressure that the jet shoots very effectively cuts through the clog and clears the drain.

Drain clogs rarely crop up without warning. It’s mostly when people ignore these signs that the clog gets out of hand. If you find that the water in the sink or shower is draining very slowly, it’s important that you call in a licensed and skilled plumber to clear drain clogs. Plumbing companies like Right Mark use the latest equipment and tools to clear any type of drain clogging issues. They can also help with other plumbing issues.
